Network Working Group

May 11th (Wednesday), 15:00-16:30, SMD room 430, see Simard hall webpage (incl. campus map) (building right across the parking lot from the UoO Residences half way to DMS).

Overview

As part of the May 2011 FreeBSD developer summit, this working group will focus on network stack layer 2 to 5 topics. This is a by-invitation event open to developer summit attendees.

The main goals will be to identify where we are, what ideas, plans and needs exist for the upcoming 9.x and 10.x releases, decide on directions, solve problems, as well as identifying interested parties and people to drive individual projects.

Topics

Note: general presentations about work you have done that does not require further discussions should be submitted for the FreeBSD Developers' Summit track at BSDCan (see general developer summit page).

Each session should start with a very short intro on the topic followed by discussions, whiteboard session, ... whatever is needed.

If you have a topic you want to talk about or want to be on the list that is not yet, email BjoernZeeb (bz@).
